About

The Global Indymedia Network

The Indymedia global network is a network of collectively run media outlets for the creation of radical, accurate, and passionate tellings of the truth. We work out of a love and inspiration for people who continue to work for a better world, despite corporate media's distortions and unwillingness to cover the efforts to free humanity. The Independent Media Center (www.indymedia.org), was established by various independent and alternative media organizations and activists in 1999 for the purpose of providing grassroots coverage of the World Trade Organization (WTO) protests in Seattle. The center acted as a clearinghouse of information for journalists, and provided up-to-the-minute reports, photos, audio and video footage through its website. Using the collected footage, the Seattle Independent Media Center (seattle.indymedia.org) produced a series of five documentaries, uplinked every day to satellite and distributed throughout the United States to public access stations. On the bottom of the right-hand column of our website we have links to the various Indymedia sites around the world.

Austin IMC's Mission Statement
 
Austin Indymedia is a grassroots media collective committed to providing an outlet for the circulation of voices and messages that are systematically marginalized by mainstream media. Austin Indymedia refuses to hide behind a false sense of objectivity and promotes media-making as a tool for social, economic, and environmental justice. We seek to provide alternatives to for-profit media not only in our coverage, but also within our collective by implementing consensus decision making, non-hierarchical and non-specialized work methods. Austin Indymedia allows for open publishing, encourages community collaboration, and helps open access to the tools necessary to engage in grassroots media-making. These processes ensure that the means are consistent with the end - a world based in community, cooperation and sustainability.
